MINGLANILLA, Cebu - Brothers Francisco and Ozner Nabua covered their faces after being arrested in a buy-bust operation inside their rented house in a subdivision in Upper Tulay, Minglanilla in Cebu province on Thursday night.

During the operation, policemen seized close to P1 million worth of suspected shabu and P25,000 cash believed to be proceeds of the illegal drug transaction.

According to Minganilla PNP, the target of the operation was Francisco but Ozner, who was identified as a drug "runner," was also arrested.

"Both were new players in Minglanilla town who transacted as far as Cebu City, Talisay, and Naga, Cebu," Minglanilla police chief Supt. Dexter Calacar said.

The suspects denied the allegations and claimed the evidence was planted.
